Botanica might not look like much from the outside, but once you get into the dining room, the restaurant and gin bar feels like a place where you either could dress up or arrive in your comfy joggers and not feel out of place. The menu is French using lots of local produce, with dishes like venison meatballs with zucchini in a blueberry sauce and a hearty risotto with tiny gems of eggplant. The cocktails are also a highlight—our favorites being the ultra-floral Turkish rose with rose cordial and cardamom bitters and the Empress gin and tonic that magically changes from indigo to pink as you swirl it, making you feel like a fancy scientist.
